887 Visa - What's the update?

Recommended Posts

I also beleive  this is either 489 or while 887 is pending , because 887 is a permanent residency visa and no need to get firb approval , i enquired about obtaining a home loan from a broker and their suggestion was to wait until we get the 887 pr or alternatively we can go ahead with firb and a big deposit (which includes an insurance i think) . 

Hi Dar, 

sorry i did get home loan on 489, yes 887 is PR itself so u get 95% home loan and no stamp duty for first home buyer. 

also if you purchasing property in sydney or in NSW they have waived off stamp duty.

I think neel has confusion between bridging visa and 887.... as soon as we apply our 887 be are granted bridging visa a/b .

you @su89 are right 887 is a PR.

Dear All,

I am kind of expert on property related matter as I am huge victim.

Anyone who applied for 887 visa and got bridging visa doesn’t effect until the 489 visa valid. Any temporary visa holder government treated as a foreign person. So anyone purchased or signed any kind of agreement must need to follow the following rules.

 

A.      Must need to FIRB approval which cost around $5000.00

+

B.      Full Stamp Duty (No one get any first home owner benefit.

+

C.      Surcharge Duty: If anyone purchased property from 1st july 2016 to 30th June 2017 need to pay additional 4% (of total property price surcharge). If property price 500000.00 need to pay additionally $20000.

Or

Anyone purchased property from 1st july 2017 to 30th June 2018 need to pay additional 8% (of total property price surcharge). This mean property

This mean if you pucharged a property during TR you have to pay $500000.00 worth property additionally + $24000 stamp duty+ FIRB $5000 + Surcharge due depend 4% or 8 % of $20000 or $40000.00 Total $549000 or $569000.00

 

I have done a settlement of our property after 6 month later my mother f’’ker solicitor called me and said I Have to pay the surcharged duty of $20000 additionally and he reported on review in Revenue NSW and currently I am fighing with this. 

Recomondation not to buy or signed any contract during TR.

Yes bro same thing happened to me and my husband, we went to solicitor to sign the papers the apartment was under $500,000 as per new rule we had to pay $13,000. 

we also paid 20% deposit on the property, wasn't really worth it, ( will not suggest anyone to get into this till you get PR). 

Worst is that, the price didn't went up much, an renovation cost is hitting my head high. a PR soon, may solve my miseries of this , and will sell this and move back to Sydney.

Hi Nelakash,

Let's say you buy a land in installments. You signed a contract now while you are in TR and full payment is made after 2 years. By the time you title the land, you became PR.My question is why do we need to pay surcharge when the land is not titled to your name and you haven't paid full payment?

Dear Deftown,

If you signed any kinds of agreement or contract related property or land you must need to get FIRB approval prior sign the contract. Once you signed the contract by law you need to pay the stamp duty + surcharge within 3 months time. Sometimes land might take longer time for settlement. If you get ur PR prior settlement you will be eligible for surcharge duty refund. Or if you get the land settlement prior ur PR then you surcharge duty won't be refundable. If anyone breach this law have to suffer the criminal penalty or civil penalty

https://firb.gov.au/resources/guidance/gn01/ (Overview)

https://firb.gov.au/resources/guidance/gn11/ ( Penalties and offences for non-compliance)

 

Regarding surcharge duty refund follow are the link

http://www.revenue.nsw.gov.au/taxes/spd

Are refunds given when the property is transferred to persons who are no longer foreign on transfer?

Yes. If surcharge has been paid on an agreement for sale or transfer of residential related property, and the Chief Commissioner is satisfied that none of the transferees, in respect of a transfer made in conformity or partial conformity with the agreement, are foreign persons, a refund may be sought once all transferees are registered on title.

Hi Mel887,

From the spreadsheet i got to know that you have applied for 887 on 13/06/2018. If your visa 489 is still valid, then your bridging visa will not come into effect. Neither 489 nor Bridging Visa-A doesn't allow you to access any centrelink benefits. May be centrelink officers misunderstood that you have got your 887 visa (PR). Please clarify with them once more.

 

No I clearly told that I have just applied and she was fully aware of the 887 application not the grant... 

but after reading comments, I will again get back to them..

and just for the info

they created my Centrelink account and I have successfully logged in too and yes one more thing

 

she said you are not eligible for parenting payment but yes for child care.. 

if anybody already lodged a claim, please throw some light..

thanks

Hey AHP,

As the other members said, just give it a go, be polite, and you will not lose anything. My feeling is that if your application total waiting time is long than the visa processing time published on homeaffairs website, they will be very likely to give the CO a nudge.  

Hi everyone,

Today, I made a call and ........................................... We just got our 4 email granted! (received them at 16:15) .
Thanks to everyone who provided me useful information.  And special thanks to @Johnson@Tpsk, @su89

Good luck to you, all my friends.

Really happy for you... congrats! After a stressful wait now you can celebrate!

Lesson for us-those who are waiting -if we keep an eye on processing times and if we find a gap like this we can ring them and query if they keep dragging processing our files.. atleast then they will pull out our files from the cupoards

Dear Seniors,

I am a 489 visa holder in Adelaide and planning to apply for 887 visa in a few days.

Below are my questions and looking forward for your advise. 

1. is it recommended to apply 887 visa through agent?

2.To save some dollars, can I apply 887 visa myself with the help of forums? How about the documentation such as certified, assessed etc etc.

3. Is it much complex and complicated?

Your help is much appreciated. 

Vinayak
